Special Requirements?


The PTC25 is an automated instrument designed for application in Hot Start thermal cycling reactions. Also the Cycler contains a RT program function, it is simple and convenient to run one-step RT by combining the RT program with a stored amplification reaction. Another feature of Cycler is the flexible program editing, which allows researchers to set up an amplification program containing different temperature ramping conditions within individual loops. The PTC25 also offers the flexibility to create an advanced amplification program which could increase/decrease temperatures and hold time for an assigned step from cycle to cycle. The small size and competitive pricing make it suitable for a personal instrument ownership.


  • Microprocessor control with digital performance
  • Wide temperature control range and great temperature controlled performance
  • LCD display
  • Self pressure adjusting heating lid
  • User friendly and powerful program performance
  • RT program
  • Link up to 5 loops for one program
  • Up to 9 steps for each loop
  • Up to 99 cycles for each program
